The Minnesota Vikings take on the Tennessee Titans still looking for their first win of the preseason. Don't expect to see much of the starters as teams get a final look at their bench players before roster cuts on Saturday.
The Vikings were routed by the 49ers, 34-14, on Sunday. Christian Ponder struggled, throwing for just 116 yards on 23 attempts, but backup Matt Cassel didn't do much against a deep 49ers defense, completing just 3-of-10 passes for 28 yards. Look for McLeod Bethel-Thompson to get an extended look. On defense, the team lost Kevin Williams to a hyperextended knee and he is questionable for Week 1. Rookie Sharrif Floyd hasn't played since getting a minor knee scope, but he might get some playing time in Williams' place.
Jake Locker was sharp in the Titans' 27-16 win over the Falcons, completing 11-of-13 passes for 133 yards and one touchdown. The Titans invested big on the offensive line in the offseason, and it seems to be paying off. Chris Johnson also looks revived, rushing for 65 yards on 11 carries. Receiver Kenny Britt missed practice with swelling in his knee and won't play this week.
